Since this is a jpeg, you will have to turn each letter into a vector. The quick way but not very good way of turning a jpeg into a vector is by going to Object -> Image Trace -> Make. Red: You can then select Image Trace Panel to fine tune the selection. This will bring up a window where you can select options so Illustrator knows how you want the ...

Not free, but I always liked MainType & FontExplorer X Pro My favorite feature on maintype is Font Group, I don't know if the newer version of FontExplorerX has it. Another thing I do to keep my fonts recognised is, I write them down, What are the best fonts for print? for web? for apps? I select 5 to 10 fonts (free or paid) and choose with the team ...

The "CEC" on the left side is pretty easy to reproduce, so you should be able to do it in no time (playing with circles and pathfinder in Illustrator would do the trick). So I'm guessing you are talking about the "Controlgear..." part. I'm 99% sure it's Arial. You should try some tools like "WhatTheFont" (like PieBie suggested) when you are trying to find ...

The problem appears to be with those fonts, at least that's what it looks like to me. You can see how poorly made the font is and that some of its characters are incomplete.

For PDF files outlining fonts is not necessary. With the proper PDF job options, fonts are embedded into the PDF as live type. This allows the font to retain it's original hinting data. See here for an explanation on hinting: When is font hinting used for print? With respect to this "girl on facebook".... A corrupt font is as likely to happen as a ...

As far as I am aware, it is not at all necessary, assuming all fonts have been embedded. However, I will always include a rasterised (JPG) copy of the artwork when sent to the printers along with the PDF, Just to be SURE their software/RIP is rendering the pdf as expected. Never rely on "It's supposed to" - things corrupt, versions change etc. You can't ...

If you're on a Mac, you may be able to view licensing information in Font Book, and for Windows, open fonts settings in Control Panel. You can possibly try a font creation app, such as Glyphs or Fontforge to view license information.

What The Font is the most popular one: https://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ There are others. FYI, if you're getting font files from other designers, unless the the license allows for re-distribution, they are likely breaking the license of the fonts. Technically, you should have your own license of the font if you are going to work on the files further ...

There are a bunch of free font-identifiers that you can use to detect font. Crop the section of your image that contains the fonts that you need identify and upload them in one the following sites, it should get you closer to the real font. In most case, stylized fonts are hard to detect, as they could be modified for a cosmetic effect which makes it look ...

Your options are: 1) Flattening the layers and exporting your PDF. This is not the ideal solution because of the loss of quality. 2) You can try to open your .psd files with the layers in Illustrator See if your fonts show properly. If they do, go on the menu "Type" in Illustrator and select "create outline". Your fonts will become graphics of perfect ...

If you want to get that exact effect, and ok with spending some time, and familiar with Adobe Illustrator, you might wanna follow the steps here. Or if you're more of an Adobe Photoshop user, you might wanna follow the steps in the article over here.

There's lot of free fonts on dafont.com BUT be careful, you cannot use the fonts specified "free for personal use" and the demo for any commercial projects. Read the terms for each font anyway or contact the uploader, it's usually on the font page of each font. You'll probably need to modify some elements of the font to get to a result similar to your ...

A good option is Sneaker Script This font is outside of your price range but I don't remember seeing many fonts below $30. Another kinda close font is Corner Store from Adobe Type Kit. This font may be free, Annabelle These fonts share a free flowing style of writing. Whenever you see a swirl or long tail at the end of the word it can be an ...

I am the designer of Dequindre, a font mentioned in one of the other answers. I'll be releasing it soon (I neglected it as I was finishing up my MFA). It will contain a historical long s and a number of ligatures (mostly of the f_ variety). It has 355 glyphs and has the necessary accents to support a good number of languages, so for instance if you for some ...

There is no typical answer for your question, there is no rule, however you can follow you own methodology for the work, working with a template and graphic, text and paragraph style to ensure a consistency and unity for your work. For the aspect ratio: you should gather all your illustration graph and plots and find the best way to present it preserving ...

While this not directly answers your questions, here is what I do (except for well-justified exceptions): Always work in the target journal’s style. For pure plots: For the first plot: Decide whether it should be a one-column or two-column plot. Adjust the height of what is plotted such that the information I want to convey is best visible and I also do ...

If I understand your question well, you'd like to be able to easily have all your graphic elements all balanced and easy to insert in your main layout. First, know that it's way easier to plan ahead if you already have all your text and know what you're going to use. That gives you already good clues. For example... if you plan to always insert your ...

From the FAQ: Question: 1.1 Can I use the fonts for a book or other print publication, to create logos or other graphics or even to manufacture objects based on their outlines? Answer: Yes. You are very welcome to do so. Authors of fonts released under the OFL allow you to use their font software as such for any kind of design work. No additional ...

Is it normal practice to use two different fonts for print material and email? Yes. Actually, it's normal practice do not specify any font in email. Email is text and not everyone wants HTML formatted email. And most people don't want to have to download a font just to view their email--especially on a mobile network.

I have resolved the issue, the culprit was the font's PostScript name (which I naively never changed). I'm guessing it has to do with the caching of fonts based on PostScript names or something. I don't understand it exactly. To change the PostScript name, I've used FontLab Studio 5. In Studio 5, there's a "Font Info" icon to the top left of the "Font" ...

There are also the 'crisp' 'normal' and other text modes near the font size option.

You shouldn't provide the native editable files. If you do, you should charge a high price for this since it contains the "recipe" of how you did your layouts and how you achieved some special effects. Some clients use editable files to learn tricks or will distribute them to another designer who will gladly take the credit for your work. The points you ...

The differences are usually very minor ones and sometimes very hard to notice. It can be a slightly different kerning for example. None are better than the other. The important thing is to try to stick to the same version when possible. Otherwise your publishing or design software might not recognize the version you're using and will show the font as ...

To change the way your fonts look and prevent that blurry effect, maybe you could make some tests changing the font anti-aliasing setting on the character panel (see screenshot below.) You need to select the same one for each line of texts. I think what you may be looking for is the Mac LCD option for your font. ===== EDIT: One thing I also noticed: You ...

A font file usually contains only vector information on the shapes of glyphs. Some fonts also come with so-called bitmap strikes for different font sizes though, which are usually hand-corrected for the best rendering. I guess that you have such a font and only changed the vector information while the bitmaps are unchanged. In some programs you now see the ...
